EZ-Backup Error Log (Windows)

This article applies to: EZ-Backup

TSM generates an error log file containing any errors generated by the Tivoli Storage Manager application and services.

By default, you'll find the scheduler log in the following location:

C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient\dsmerror.log

  • If you have Windows set to hide filename extensions for known file types, the file will appear as a text file in that location with the name "dsmerror."
  • You can search for "dsmerror" if you did not accept the default location when configuring the TSM client.

Open the file with a text editor (such as Notepad) and scroll to the bottom. (The most recent information is added to the end of the file.)
